#8 The Rock Clock App
Launched back in 2016, The Rock got the idea for this motivational alarm clock after several of his fans expressed their desire to wake as early as 4AM, as he does, and organize their life. The app also helps the users in their fitness regime by setting goals and guiding them in accomplishing them.
The actor-wrestler also used pre-recorded motivational quotes during the fitness sessions.
Apart from this, the clock offers 25 ringtones to wake up to, with all of them curated by The Rock himself. This app is available to all smartphones available on Android and iOS free of cost.
#7 Athleticon (Announced by The Rock and Dany Garcia in 2019)
The Rock and longtime business partner Dany Garcia announced in 2019 that they would be organizing an event that celebrates wellness, athletics and entertainment. Though it was supposed to take place in October last year in Atlanta, Georgia, the event is on hold for now, but can be expected to be revived once the pandemic fades away.
Athleticon will include guest speakers, panels, performances, interactive sessions, and competitive athletic events. Several reputable names from the movie industry will also likely mark their presence at the convention that is inspired by Comic Cons across the globe. Targeted towards every age-group, the event is being planned as an annual convention, rather than just a one-off.
